```Here's a quick test of Kieren's suggestion, showing first the overridden
slur and then one without the override.  Not too hard to do as long as
there aren't too many.

This slur setting would be the norm. If it's too much work, I'll have to give up Lilypond. I'm not actually even studying it for myself, but to teach someone else to use it. He is much less computer savy than I am, so even without this complication teaching (and using) would be a challenge. I got this other person to change from Windows to GNU/Linux a couple of years ago, and I whish I wouldn't have to put Windows back to his machine (or tell him to use proprietary software - if avoidable).

```This is a good trick to know.  Thanks Kieren :)

\version "2.11.61"

\relative c' {
\once \override Slur #'positions = #'(2 . 2.5)
fis4^( gis) g^( c,) d8^( d e c)
}
```

To make sure that I don't misunderstand, does "#'(2 . 2.5)" mean that the hight of the start and end points of the slur should be set manually (in some units) for every slur?
